Best Nursing Home in Olmsted Falls, Ohio Awards 2021
On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this place excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Without having all of the deficiency data for this facility, it was challenging to assess the place in the area of inspections.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Our nursing rating weighs a host of datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This place provided just 0 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a low total compared with most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest category is long-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. In this category, we gave this nursing home a D. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 90.625 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
